Appalachia Service Project commits to building houses for families in Mayfield, KY in response to flood damage
On December 10, 2021, in just under 3 hours, winds reached up to 190mph in an EF4 tornado that decimated a 165 miles path through eleven counties in Western Kentucky, causing 57 fatalities. The National Weather Service reports more than 4000 structures were damaged or destroyed, including 3,778 residences – the majority of which belonged to low-income, underinsured households.
In the past 2 years since the devastation, inspired folks and partners have responded in amazing way towards cleanup and the rebuilding of communities like Graves County. However, there is still work to be done to meet survivors needs. Local, state and national partners have asked Appalachia Service Project to build quality, energy-efficient replacement homes for homeowners still in need.
Rebuilding continues — so please check back here for periodic updates.
